There in/the fierce glare of the Arena, waiting for the end./Waiting, under the pitiless eyes of a blood thirsty multitude, from Senator and Patrician dame, to low baffoone parisite. Waiting, till fear becomes/hope, and shame grows shameless before the promise of Death!"/ Herbert Schmalz, 49 Addison Road, Kensington, London. (on an old label on the reverse)
